Notes
Harasewych et al. 2007 state that Maynard did not base his description on one specimen, and therefore that all material examined can be classed as part of a syntype series (500 specimens in total). They go on to designate a lectotype lot, USNM 420058 and to state that all of the other specimens can be considered paralectotypes including MCZ 76369, MCZ 76370, USNM 1093791, and now also the Leeds specimen. Leeds material is ex. Crowley, and the Leeds database states that it is also ex Maynard. Label states that it is ex. Salisbury collection which holds some of Maynard's collection. There is an original label from Tomlin stating that the specimen is a paratype, Crowley's label also states that this is a paratype. It is from the type locality. Both labels list the species name as litoreum.
